“Blokes & Tackle”
by Steve Starling
Angling is Australia’s most popular outdoor recreational activity. Some five million men, women and children go fishing each year and spend around $3 billion doing so. Blokes & Tackle showcases a colourful collection of characters, including Garry McDonald, Andrew Ettingshausen, fishing superstar Rex Hunt and a lot of ‘ordinary blokes’, for whom fishing is a life-enhancing passion. Profiles, photographs, historical quotations and a little philosophical ruminating collectively attempt to define this passion and discover why so many people feel that irresistible urge to ‘wet a line’.
More than a way of life, fishing can become, for some of us a least, as reason to for living. If you are such a person, or you know one, or you would like to understand one, this book is definitely for you.
